Name the Child Orphanage

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Orphans often suffer from abuse, neglect, poor health, emotional trauma, and lack of education and training without intervention and proper care.
Our organization focusing on helping orphans and other underprivileged children in remote communities.
The organization is presently running two schools for needy children in the categories mentioned below
• Orphans
• Semi Orphans
• Children of female sex workers
• Children of alcoholic parents
• Children of parents below poverty line

What is your project and how will it help?

The organization’s main mission is to help the orphans in the community by providing them quality education, nutritional help, core life skills and medical support. Already there are about 25 children we have identified to be in the home and there is a great demand for inclusion of more children. Hence many more children will be benefited.

The organization has no permanent funding and all its resources for running are mobilized through its well wishers and friends.
